Ferrofish A32pro Dante Multi-Format Converter

Multi-format rack-unit supporting 32-in/32-out AD/DA converter with Dante, 64 routable MADI channels, and Dante smart converter plus router

MFR# A32 Pro Dante

Product Description

Representing the culmination of Ferrofish’s extensive R&D developments over the last years, the Ferrorfish A32pro Series embodies the natural evolution of the company’s cost-effective and highly flexible AD/DA converters. By combining high analog channel-counts with extensive digital I/O and powerful signal routing — alongside options for redundancy and future upgrade paths — Ferrofish’s A32pro Series sets a new standard in high-quality with reliable signal conversation and distribution for modern recording studios, live audio playback systems and broadcast audio facilities.

The A32pro Dante includes 64x64 Dante I/O channels on dual Ethernet ports with redundant functionality.

With its wealth of I/O choices, the new A32pro Series can also operate as a highly flexible digital audio format converter and signal router. Audio signals can be freely converted between all analog and digital formats while being simultaneously routed to multiple destinations in blocks of 8 channels, allowing for use in a wide range of professional audio applications. Multiple Ferrofish units can be connected in series to provide an incredible number of audio channels in a comparatively minimal amount of rack-space as redundant power supplies ensure the reliability necessary for mission-critical applications.

DYNAMIC UPGRADES WITH INCREDIBLE CONNECTIVITY

Based on the new modular hardware platform and featuring the latest generation of AD/DA converters from ESS Tech, the A32pro Dante packs an incredible amount of connectivity options into a single 1U frame. It feature 32 analog inputs and 32 analog outputs on fully balanced DSub25 connectors. On the digital side, both devices have support for up to 64 channels of MADI I/O via dual SFP slots, which can accommodate either optical or coaxial MADI SFPs and can run in tandem for added redundancy. Up to 32 channels of ADAT optical I/O is provided in each direction with full support to double sample rates of 96 kHz.

A dual-slot bay is provided for future DSP expansions providing additional processing powered for both the A32pro and A32pro Dante’s on-board SHARC DSP processor. The new series also offers a selection of remote-control options including Ferrofish’s free companion app, REMOTEFISH, available on their website. REMOTEFISH allows for complete control over single or multiple Ferrofish devices, including all inputs, outputs, monitoring, routing and settings. Setting the A32pro Dante apart is that it includes 64x64 Dante I/O channels on dual Ethernet ports with redundant functionality.

Other features include a Stereo TRS Main Out with dedicated DAC monitoring path, 32x32 ADAT I/O channels on TOSLINK jacks with 96 kHz support, 64x64 MADI I/O channels on LC Multimode SFP module, user exchangeable (with Optical Singlemode and Coax SFP module option available). The units feature Wordclock I/O on BNC connectors with proprietary jitter reduction circuit and MIDI I/O on 3.5-mm TRS connectors. The GPIO port is included for remote presets for switching and alert monitoring on dSub15. Also included is a dual stereo headphone 1/4” TRS outputs with HQ-amp modules and a dedicated DAC.

Beyond a highly intuitive four-screen multitouch user interface, the converters feature an illuminated touch sensitive high-res encoder.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
